Peachy Porkebabs

Peachy Porkebabs

On A Bed Of Rice

Posted on August 25, 2015
Peaces are spectacular, sweet and juicy. But they' not just for desserts. These Peachy Porkebabs prove that. I bought a basket of peaches at the farmers market and knew that I couldn't eat them all, no matter how hard I tried. So I decided that they needed to be cooked in to things. But not just desserts, however sweet my sweet tooth is, I don't think that baking a bunch of peach pies and cakes, and other sweet treats was going to cut it, especially on a grilling blog. I needed to go savory, but how? Pork, is good with apples. Apples are round and sweet, they're a fruit, so are peaches. YES! That's it. I will make a peach barbecue sauce to go with my pork.

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

Lebanese Beef Shawarma

With Tahini Sauce

Posted on August 25, 2015
The success of the Chicken Shawarma recipe made me realize how delicious Shawarma can be. I wanted to make it again, but I also wanted to make a meal that was just a little different too. Lebanese Beef Shawarma With Tahini Sauce fit the bill exactly, using some traditional spice combinations you can take beef to a whole new level. The only thing we didn't have was the fries to go in the pita. But man was this  ever some good food. 

Actually, having just moved into our new home, my husband and I have had some issues with appliances and unfinished stuff (new build), so having nowhere to put our dishes for the most part left us in kind of a pickle. A pickle that is solved by making food that is portable. I know, all my pretty dishes seem to be making it onto the site okay, and I guess I could use paper plates and what not, but there's no fun in that! I want to make the food work for me! So we did.

Chicken Flautas

Chicken Flautas

With Avocado Cream

Posted on August 18, 2015
Chicken Flautas With Avocado Cream are a Mexican dish that came out of nowhere. I hadn't heard of them until a coworker asked me if I had had one before. Nope, but they sound absolutely delicious! I must make some! So I did. Basically it's a fried chicken stuffed soft taco-burrito-thingy. They're sometimes called/confused with toquitos, which are very similar, but Flautas are larger and longer. So here is my take on the Chicken Flauta. (By the way they're really delicious.)

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Posted on August 18, 2015
I wanted to make something special for my friend who came to visit our house. So we went to the farmer's market downtown for some special food. We found bison at one booth, and all of the fresh produce at the others. I even got a basket of peaches that are totally blowing my mind right now. For dinner we made Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes. Everything came from the farmer's market. It was glorious.

Grilled S'mores Poutine

Grilled S'mores Poutine

Even better than it sounds

Posted on August 12, 2015
While eating dinner at my Grandparents' home, we were discussing different kinds of poutine. Then, out of nowhere, Grilled S'mores Poutine just kind of popped out of our mouths. The idea snowballed until we couldn't contain it any longer. But why would we want to? Graham cookie "fries" topped with marshmallow "cheese curds" and topped with chocolate ganache "gravy"? I have chills just typing about it. This will be a hit the next time you have a sleepover I can guarantee.

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

With Sweet Potato Fries

Posted on August 11, 2015
An elegant meal that is perfect for your next special occasion, Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon With Sweet Potato Fries was tender and delicious. The first official meal that I grilled at our new house, I thought it was about time to celebrate. It also happens to be Filet Mignon Day on August 13th - hey my lucky number! Sure you can just grill up a filet and be done with it, but I wanted to do something a little bit special. When you go to the butcher, ask for the cut you like the look of best, thickness and color is important. Then season up those beauties on all sides before wrapping with bacon and a secret ingredient.

Chicken Tikkababs With Naan

Chicken Tikkababs With Naan

Serve it family style for more fun

Posted on July 24, 2015
At a loss of what to do with chicken, and wanting to avoid getting into a rut, I grabbed a grilling cookbook (Company's Coming, Great Grilling) and scanned the recipes for something chicken. That's when Chicken Tikka popped out at me. I glanced at the ingredients and ran to the kitchen. What happened next was mouthwatering magic.

Whisky Apple Chicken

Whisky Apple Chicken

In The Napoleon Cast Iron Skillet

Posted on July 21, 2015
On the 27th of ever July, it is National Scotch Day. To honor that I made Whisky Apple Chicken with some 15 year aged Glenlivet. Now before you freak out about the wastage of decent scotch, hear me out. It was a sample bottle and held just enough to make the recipe, and it was also not my Glenfiddich 18 or 30. I was dubious about the flavor combinations, and unsure of what to serve with this, but went with sweet potato purée which was complimented by the sweetness from the apples very nicely.

National Ice Cream Day is pretty awesome and fell perfectly on some of the hottest days of the year. And what better way to cool your jets with this easy, homemade, and minty-fresh, Mint Ice Cream With Cookies And Chocolate Swirl. Also, as it's my Husband's favorite flavor, I couldn't resist surprising him with it. The results of this experiment in ice-cream-y goodness went swimmingly and I will definitely be making this again.

Butter Chicken Pizza

Butter Chicken Pizza

Give Your Pizza An Indian Flavor Infusion

Posted on July 21, 2015
Leftovers are a glorious thing. They allow you to take bits of your favorite food and turn them into something else, something that can be amazing, or a disaster. This Butter Chicken Pizza is one of those cases where amazing happened. I made Butter Chicken for the grill and wound up with a little left over. Not enough for a full meal or even a work lunch, but enough that I didn't want to just waste it. So the following night I made Quick Pizza Dough and fired up the grill. Added a little extra pizza sauce to the leftover butter sauce and voilà! Butter Chicken Pizza.
